A book by James Kaserman ’75

The idea for James Kaserman’s historical account of swashbuckling scoundrels in the Sunshine State was more than 50 years in the making. Kaserman, who co-wrote the book with his wife, Sarah, dedicated it to his high school history teacher, who in 1956 taught the then-freshman that some of the cruelest pirates who ever lived were those on the Ohio River. “He told us that there’s always more than one story, more than one truth, to our history. You need to look on all sides of the pages that tell our story,” Kaserman said.
